Just how do you go about telling a story without words?
In the case of Slo Light, you begin with music. With an organic approach and original format, the artistry of this film produced by Cynthia Angel, directed by Dominic Lahiff with music by Neil Davidge is both intense and intriguing. Slo Light is a mystery revenge thriller about the corruptive power of the male gaze and transcendent female empowerment. While often movies are based on books, Slo Light was built from a solo album. The auditory framework composed by Davidge served as the foundation for this film. So, how many times have I watched the trailer while hanging on each note and every scene? Many times over. 'Instant Crush' is not just a killer track from Daft Punk; it's also the only way to define my response to the preview of this film that says so much without the use of a single word.
